The wonders of Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

A simple proper card for batch making.

I made a card blank out of Coconut White Card. I embossed a piece of Antique Gold Pearl Card using the Couture Creations A Magical Time Embossing Folder, matted it onto a piece of Midnight Blue Card and then onto my card blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Inside and Outside Sentiments Stamp Set onto Antique Gold Pearl Card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with CS Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest ovel in the Justrite Joy Oval Frame Dies. I cut the next sized oval out of Coconut White Card and the largest die in the set out of Midnight Blue Card.

I cut a couple of Poinsettia dies from the Justrite Multi-Step Poinsettia Dies out of Midnight Blue Card. I stamped the flower centre from the Justrite Multi-Step Poinsettia Stamp Set onto Anique Gold Pealr Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the corresponding die in the Muti-Step Poinsettia Dies set. I cut Sue Wilson's Pine Twigs out of Coconut White Card.

A few 8mm White Pearls and my card was complete.

Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Like the idea of this for batch making and it could be made to fit a smaller size using a different sized embossing folder.

  15. Hi Julia.
    Thank you a lovely card.
    Take care Kitty.

  16. I really do love this card. Of all the card making items I appreciate an embossing folder most. I recall the days of using a light box. Embossing folders have transformed my crafting and made it both quicker and easier. Embossing is so effective. Your card needs nothing more than your beautifully chosen sentiment and your blue poinsettia. Thanks.
